Point A to Point B

Bonneville Salt Flats, western Utah.


You might recognize this region from various car commercials (Acura and Lexus really like it out here) and the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

Parallel universe? Oh Nevada.

"Deeth Starr Valley." Really.

Our orange tree. I'll be buying a juicer.

Front yard floral arrangement with ferns.

House around the corner, typical of the neighborhood.

I love the yellow chairs and spiral shrubbery.

Local barber shop.

Puck in the driveway makes it really real.

The things you see on Folsom Boulevard...


J Street metal bridge.

American River, evening, looking north from CSUS foot bridge towards J Street.

Scottish Rite Center, across from the fire station.

The American River is a steelhead river...which is not quite so good as a trout river, but better than no river at all, I say.

I hope you're settling in well to your new town and new job!

Thank you, I am!

It is a steelhead river. So far I've only seen a few fishermen but it's been unseasonably rainy and cold. I'm going to look into an annual license and see what kind of bait is legal. I'm not sure about the Sacramento river; it's also nearby. But there are hundreds of lakes around here, and the San Francisco Bay delta. I could dive for abalone in the bay! Except for that part about how terrified I am of the breathing apparatus.

You can also drive into the Sierras. Those are some beautiful mountains.
